▸ KODE 9 — (born 1974 in Glasgow, Scotland; birthname Steve Goodman) is a London-based electronic music artist, DJ, and owner of the Hyperdub record label. The late MC, The Spaceape, was a frequent collaborator. Initially inspired by what he calls the "hardcore continuum", he also draws on dub reggae, and was one of the founding members of the early dubstep scene (which he views as a continuation of developments originally stemming from UK Hardcore). He appeared on the Grime compilation on Rephlex, and released two full-length albums: Memories of the Future and Black Sun (both featuring the Spaceape) on his own label Hyperdub. Kode9 has a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Warwick and has published a book, Sonic Warfare: Sound, Affect, and the Ecology of Fear.

▸ ADDISON GROOVE — Antony Williams aka Addison Groove started out life under a different pseudonym altogether, that of Headhunter, under which he achieved legendary status within the dubstep scene. With an LP and 12" releases on the influential Tempa label stretching back to 2007, his work at the deeper end of the dubstep spectrum has graced the label an impressive 7 times, a figure matched only by luminaries such as Skream & Horsepower Productions. This work looked set to continue until 2010 when, seemingly out of nowhere, he crafted one of the biggest bass music tracks of the decade, 'Footcrab', under the new name of Addison Groove. The response to 'Footcrab' was phenomenal, receiving critical and commercial success in equal measure across the dance music scene. Getting plays not only from the dubstep DJs that Williams was used to reaching, it also found its way into the record boxes of techno and house heavyweights such as Surgeon, Ricardo Villalobos and Mr Scruff, bringing an enormous new audience to his music in the process. Taking influences from the Chicago ghetto tek and juke scenes, Addison Groove's impact on UK bass music has been colossal and unprecedented, sparking a huge interest in these styles from his peers and the listening public alike. Progressing at a breakneck pace, he was quick to develop a live 808 show which has graced some of the finest nightclubs in the world including Fabric, London and Berlin's infamous Berghain. With his hectic touring schedule including USA, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and numerous dates in Europe, he continues to bring his hybrid sound to captivated audiences across the globe.

▸ ONLY NOW - Only Now (Kush Arora ) is the land where cyberpunk aesthetics, underground African polyrhythms, and spacious explorations into cinematic sound collide for intense and profound results. This show celebrates the second release by Kush Arora under his new live alias. Kush Arora has been sculpting sound in San Francisco and beyond for the past 15 years. Kush has been featured in The Wire, Spin Magazine, Fact Magazine and countless outlets for his notable work in the tropical bass, dub, dancehall, and Indian music scenes, with his 11+ record discography and 16 years in the scene, but this marks a new beginning for him. His remixes and collaborations span artists as diverse as Balkan Beat Box to Gappy Ranks.

"Hollow" is the 2nd release from Only Now, containing 4 obsidian slabs of vivid and uncompromising sonic architecture by Kush Arora. The record explores vast landscapes of mutant Kuduro, Gqom, and industrial sounds with the techniques of physically modeled drums, undulating tempo, and resonant processing.
